× Note: Sanctuaries are different to National Parks in Thailand, Thailand currently has established 39 sanctuaries and access is more restrictive as their role is as a sanctuary for wildlife rather than a park for the nation. Some sanctuaries do allow limited access to tourists.

Rating a trail :

Rating a trail : was created by Trekker
When rating a trail its important that we are all using the the same terms to mean the same things. Ergo we have come up with the following very easy system for rating trails:

Difficulty level scale ::  1) EASY 2) MODERATE 3) HARD 4) OUCH!

The scale is based on your average middle aged (35-45) person who leads a normal average life. If you are not average then you can adjust accordingly  

Easy - speaks for itself, achievable by anyone in under two hours, no physical exertion, like a walk down to the shops with a twist
Moderate - more physically demanding than "easy" and involving longer trail times and possibly some steep climbs or some difficult terrain. Your average trail.
Hard - physically demanding, steep hillsides, difficult terrain throughout, for those who have experience in moderate trails already.
Ouch! - speaks for itself.
